Hello Team,

We are using Discontinuation Data in Material Master.

Three material used M1,M2 ,M3

M1-header material

M2 is discontinuation material

M3 is follow up material

In MRP4 view Discontin. ind =1 Eff out is set and follow up is also maintained.

Following steps are executed by me

Creates Sales Order of M1 material.

Sales Order Bom is created.

Execute MD50 with Planning Mode 3 for header material(Using Discontinuation data for component)

Convert planned order to Production order

Currently in production order it's using M3 material which is correct

But when I changed Individual/coll. field of MRP4 view from 1 to 2.

Its not taking Discontinuation data into consideration in production order and component

as M2 is considered not M3.

Could you please let me know the reason.
